Video: Reduce the Pain of Vaccination in Babies
Video: Reduce the Pain of Vaccination in Babies
The recently released 2-minute video outlines some of the techniques that parents can use to reduce pain during routine vaccinations. During a baby's first 18 months, needle injections are part of their routine care. The pain from these procedures can be distressing, both for the child and for the parents. In fact, negative experiences can cause parents to delay vaccinations, or not vaccinate them at all. As a result, Professor Anna Taddio, University of Toronto, created this video for parents and health care professionals to raise awareness of what can be done to lessen the pain experienced during vaccinations.
